Wanderlust, a noun with the meaning “strong desire to travel”. The wanderlust theme illustrates the cultural strive to discover the beauty in unexpected areas across all over the corners of the globe. Most of us have an untraveled adventure that we carry inside ourselves, a longing to escape the everyday. Wanderlust is the physical manifestation of that spiritual un-settledness, a desire to leave oneself behind in order to find another. Few of us, though, have the sense of greater destiny to embark on such a quest.
